Three Superb Movies
Ideal Romantic Gift
three-movie box set!
Gone with the Wind, Ben-Hur and Doctor Zhivago
Long before computers turned every crowd scene and every grandiose
backdrop into a pixellated virtual construct, these movies did it all for
real. Nothing can substitute for their authentic sense of what really
makes an epic: strong characters, emotionally involving storytelling and
the grandest, most romantic sense of large-scale moviemaking. All three
contain sequences and images that are indelibly burned into popular
consciousness. Just recall Vivien Leigh's walk through the wounded of
Atlanta, or her pledge never to be hungry again silhouetted against an
achingly vivid sunset. Remember Charlton Heston rowing the Roman galley,
or charging round the arena in his chariot. Or the enigmatic beauty of
Julie Christie, the train ride to the Urals and the charge into No Man's
In 'Ben Hur' a man who defies the Romans brings
tragedy to himself and his family. Set against the back-drop of the life
'Gone With The Wind' is an
absorbing film version of Margaret Mitchell's Pullitzer Prize-winning
novel about life in America's Deep South during the Civil War.
'Doctor Zhivago' is a story of love and romance told against the flaming
background of the Russian Revolution. Zhivago is a poet, surgeon, husband
and lover struggling for survival. Based on the novel by Boris Pasternak.
